New York Cut Pork

Posted by Mr. Leslie Wong On February - 14 - 2008


I went to Save Mart yesterday and in the meat section, I saw something I’d never seen before, New York Cut pork.

I googled “New York cut” and found Barry Popik‘s excellent etymological discourse. After living 25 years in New York City, I knew that “New York cut” steaks don’t exist in New York (at least the last time I was there) – they’re called sirloin steaks. New York steak is their moniker everywhere else.

I guess Save Mart just decided to call a pork sirloin (cutlet) a New York Pork Cutlet.
